It takes talent to write a great historical romance novel, but to write three in a row and make them all worthy reads is a challenge. If you like to read trilogies, as I do, here’s see my list of the top ones I recommend HERE.
Among the things I love are spy stories set in turbulent times, shipmasters who are masters of the sea, and the country of Scotland. All of them come together in my new Regency romance, A Secret Scottish Christmas, set on the northeast coast of Scotland.
Britain was certainly in turmoil then. With high taxes from the Napoleonic wars and the lack of any Parliamentary representation for the growing numbers of workers in the north, the winds of rebellion were stirring.
When Lord Sidmouth gets word of a man of the Scottish gentry raising cries for reform in Scotland, he sends two of his agents north. They just happen to be the identical Powell twins. Their cover to get them there? An invitation to a “secret” Christmastide celebration at the home of a successful shipbuilder in Arbroath.
Into the mix steps a beautiful lass with fiery red hair and two loyal dogs she has named “Goodness” and “Mercy”. Throw in a snowball fight, ice skating on a frozen pond and a trip to Stonehaven for Hogmanay and to see Dunnottar’s ghosts, and you have a Christmas to be long remembered.

For every woman who ever believed she was unworthy of her dream…
HE SEIZED LIFE BY THE THROAT
Dubbed the Black Wolf for his raven hair, his fierceness in battle and his way with women, Sir Alexander of Talisand attacked life as he did the king’s enemies. But acclaim on the battlefield and his lusty escapades did not satisfy. King William Rufus would bind him to Normandy through marriage to one of its noblewomen, but the only woman Alexander wanted was a commoner he had saved from a terrible fate.
SHE KEPT MEN AT BAY WITH HER BOW
The shame of being the child of a Norman’s rape dogged Merewyn’s steps from her youth. Determined never to be a victim of a man’s lust like her mother, in Wales she donned the garb of an archer and developed extraordinary skill with a bow. Despite her fair beauty, men now keep their distance. No longer in need of protection from other men, can Merewyn protect herself from Alexander when he holds her heart yet can never be hers?
Praise for the Medieval Warriors series:
“This series captures the medieval era perfectly, creating the true sensation of traveling back in time to experience epic, riveting love stories that ignite the imagination. Beautifully written, perfectly paced and action-packed... What more can you ask?”
— The Book Review
I have read many Georgian and Regency romances over the years, so it was inevitable that I should have a “best list” to include them. The Georgian era covers the period from 1714 to 1830, with the sub-period of the Regency, 1811-1820, when George, Prince of Wales (‘the Prince Regent”) reigned during the mental illness of his father George III. If you love romances set in that era, take a look at my "Best List" Here.

I first discovered Western romances by reading those written by my favorite authors who wrote in other subgenres of historical romance. Since then, I have become a true fan of stories set in the Old West. If you're looking for a good one, check out my "Best List" on Historical Romance Review. See it HERE.
